Worth the rental.

Silent Hill Downpour is better than I expected it to be. I'll get to it, this game is a rental unless you are an absolute fan of the SH franchise. The graphics are best described as early current generation. Meaning it resembles some gaming graphics of the games that were released when the 360 and PS3 were first released. Still better than Wii graphics. The fog is has no dramatic effect for me. You run through with no cool particle effects. The graphics represent classic Silent Hill.

The sounds and soundtrack is trademark Silent Hill. Ominous tones set the environment. The radio crackle when monsters are nearby.

The combat is clunky at times but not so bad that it detracts so much from the gameplay. The puzzles are predictable if you have played many adventure games. Need a key, crank, or tool? Explore the nooks and crannies before heading over to find yourself stuck. Once you find a crank, find a key, find a tool you'll unlock the puzzle before you even come up on it. The usual turn three times and you solved it.

The game isn't as horrible as IGN says. Don't get all jaded by Uncharted 3. Its good in its own right.

Worth the rental.

Plays like first Resident Evil.

The game play is like the first Resident Evil which I really like. However, the game is really glitchy and I wasn't able to finish some side quests because of it. Game area is confusing and hard to navigate. It would be a really great game if not for those two factors.
